Solar battery backup is an important add-on to your system. Depending on your installation, a battery will provide a solar-powered solution for a great variety of needs. External batteries hook up to the system and have the ability to store and supply additional power. Stored power can be set to kick in automatically when needed or during grid power outages. This allows owners to be secure knowing that they are maximizing the supply of power and covering all possible situations.

Battery backup solar power during power outages

Know your options

The kind of battery storage you seek will depend on your specific needs for backup power. Some are more suitable for a few hours of use a day, helping you reduce grid power consumption. Others are excellent at being backups in case your regular power gets cut off during an outage. Larger batteries will naturally offer power for longer periods.

Maximizing backup to suit your installation

Of course, smaller backup power units do not have the capacity for sustained power for an extended period. In addition, homeowners with existing rooftop solar systems in place need to check if their system can accommodate energy storage. The battery installation needs to be compatible with the current system installation.

Call up your solar power system provider and check what backup battery options match your system. This way, you can narrow down the options to those maximizing the power from your existing home installation.

Maximizing better technology

In the past, people who purchased home solar power systems likely skipped the storage part. Firstly, because it was just too expensive back then. As a result, people felt they could not justify the extra cost. Secondly, they may have wanted the batteries, but there were no viable options for their requirements. However, modern storage options are vastly better, making the added expense much easier to justify.

Storage capacities are now also getting bigger.  As a result, systems integrate well, maximizing efficiency of supply for your home. Peak power is improving, and while batteries’ lifespans vary, most are good for years. Some come with decade-long warranties, so there’s assurance in case of failure as well. With costs of batteries constantly coming down, it’s a big plus for consumers!

Is a solar battery backup an option for your home?

There are naysayers that are still resisting the move to installing solar battery backup. While power outages may not be common in your area, it is always better to prepare ahead. If a blackout hits, you will have power while your neighbors sit in darkness. With lights on and your home functioning as normal, you’ll be extremely happy you have battery backup.
